Recently I experienced one of the scariest, but possibly one of the most awesome days, of my life. It was something that I had been planning for about five months, so you’d think I would be fully prepared but alas… it still ended in tears.
In order to raise money for Action Aid UK and my charity trip to Malawi in September, I did a sponsored head shave.
I was terrified for many reasons…
The main reason being that I thought I would look like an alien, or have a funny shaped head. I was shaking and taking deep breaths as my friend AJ sliced and shaved my head. It took so long because I didn’t realise how unbelievably thick my hair was!
I managed to not cry until the very end but I think it was just shock!
I had a small crowd of friends and spectators that were brilliant throughout, cheering me on and clapping once it was done!
The thing that made me most comfortable was my brilliant and supportive boyfriend, GK, who shaved his head too, to support me in my fundraising and to make me feel more comfortable.
I can’t thank him enough for this. It definitely made the process easier.
I am very proud of myself and my boyfriend and it turns out we don’t look too bad with shaved heads!
We raised £482 for Action Aid UK!
Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming amount of support.
